Brandon and Zane Hunt, the Detroit natives responsible for Via 313 pizza, opened Nickel City, a bar at 1133 E. 11th St. in the old Longbranch Inn. The bar, which features a strong whiskey selection, cocktails, frozen riffs on classics and ample beer, features a food truck outside. Delray Cafe, named after a neighborhood in South Detroit, serves a menu of no-fuss bar fare like sliders, hot dogs and chicken wings. Delray Cafe opens at 5 p.m. daily and stays open late.
